Crisis Averted

Baseball and those who still follow the sport were spared a match-up between the most vile and hate-filled fans in sports and the most over-the-top obnoxious fans in sports.

The Tampa Bay Rays, they of the most indifferent fans in baseball, will square-off against the Philadelphia Phillies and their venom-spewing followers.

Baseball Crank, a schizophrenic blog site that can’t decide whether or not they want to be a sports site or a politico/currents site (dontcha hate those?) breaks down the keys to the success of the Rays' worst to first season here.

We like the Rays for no other reason than the Rays wrapped up the ALCS against the Red Sox on Sunday, had a nice little two day break and are back at it again for Game 1 this evening at home while the Phillies last played what seems like last month. Momentum, continuity, pitching rotation/rest all thrown out of whack due to the long layoff.
